I don't know how you feel about used, but there's a 65cm Raleigh Pro frame from the late '70s on eBay right now...
Probably won't go for big $$, as the late '70s Pros aren't as popular as the earlier "fastback" version, unless it's a "Team" model. Also, a friend of mine rides 64 cm frames, and may have some good ones to sell...

Anyway, you'll probably like the Casati, and the Victory group is pretty decent. The brakes look just like late Super Record except for logo on the levers & type of release on the calipers. The cranks have the C-Record type of auto-extractor bolt, and can take a small inner ring, good for climbing. Victory headsets look almost the same as the chromed steel Record headset of previous years, and last a long time. Enjoy!
